Melanie Zwick: Rec district should be recognized in rec center sign
April 22, 2011
To the Editor:
After reading the article in the paper a few weeks ago about the rec center signage, I was incensed. What! Possibly having no mention of the Fraser Valley Recreation District (FVMRD) in the signage? The naming of the rec center has been, and still is, a huge concern of the community as the naming rights were basically signed away by the FVMRD board in the contract. We taxpayers, who are largely supporting the maintenance and operation of the rec center, deserve some recognition as well as do the employees of FVMRD. Until the rec center is taken over by Grand Park (as per the contract) it belongs to the FVMRD and that must be publicity recognized on the building. Get involved. Stand up for what we deserve. Let your voice be heard. Go to the FVMRD board meetings. The next one is at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, in the FVMRD rec center.
